API code with customized settings including latitude, longitude, current conditions, and more

Simple. Powerful.

With both REST and WebSocket endpoints, you can tap into the Tempest API on demand or you can get information as it happens in real-time. Whether creating a simple data feed for one station or a full-blown application for millions of users, the Tempest API is all you need. The best way to get started is to buy a Tempest Weather Station and start using data from your own hardware, but you can also play around with our interactive developer documentation even if you don’t own a Tempest yet.
